Einstein's X-Box

If Einstein were alive today, and well enough to play video games, I think he might actually try one. After all, he once said that too much reading can stifle creativity (I paraphrase). The question is, what type of game would he play for fun? With the vast amount of games out there, you'd think something would spark his interest without being too overly educational or brainy.
What do you think?

car help?

Hi guys,

Do any of you know stuff about cars? I thought I had finally found a good community for car trouble questions, but after posting my question I saw that no one else has posted there since November. 

Can you help answer my question? r recommend a good site for asking car questions? Part of the issue with my car is that its problem always seems to disappear on my way to the mechanic and reappear at inconvenient times...

Alternatively: What kind of car do you have? Is it pretty reliable? Funny car stories?

What do you think of fake large gauge earrings like these for people who won't, or can't, stretch their ears? Should only people who have gone through the stretching process be allowed to wear this kind of stuff? Is it cheating? I'd be particularly interested to hear what people with large gauge ear piercings think about this.

What should I get my friend for her birthday? She likes make-up, clothes, shoes, jewellery and going out.  She's hiring out a local club for her birthday in March and I'm not sure what to get her!

a hypothetical scenario based on an argument I heard a friend of a friend having with her boyfriend:  if your SO wanted to get a large tattoo on their back of two naked women/men/people, would you object? Why? Why not? I don't think I would mind, as it's their body, their choice

Sometimes when I go to comment on things in TQC, my keyboard stops cooperating. Spaces won't show up, the cursor will jump a letter back and start typing at the beginning on a word, there's serious lag. It's fine elsewhere, I can type in the google search bar fine while this is happening- it's just the comments section of LJ groups. It's driving me crazy! Is this happening to anyone else?

Do you do anything that others might consider gross or unsavory for your Significant Other? 
My lovely boyfriend jokes that when he had his hair restored in his 20s, they made a mistake and put some of it on his back.  I have one of those vibrate-y hair-remover comb wand things and I have to shave a decent amount of his back before he is comfortable enough to go anywhere without his shirt.  He also says it's for me so that when we're in bed, I'm "not grabbing a Chia-pet back there", but I really don't care.  (He would be so embarrassed if he knew I was telling anyone this!)

What is your most beloved tool/product in your bathroom?
My hair-straightener.  Saves my life on a very regular basis when my hair doesn't want to cooperate.

We're gonna stay in a nice hotel for a night, probably in Boston, for our anniversary.
Suggestions for a place?
How do I find the best rate?
Anything I should know so I don't seem like an ignorant fool on my first stay?
